The next release on Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space Records comes from Dukes Of Chutney, the California brother-duo of John Paul Jones, aka Tom Croose, one half of Worst Friends, and filmmaker, musician and writer Dustin Lynn, who has also directed campaigns for designers Alexander McQueen and Corto Moltedo. The pair’s superb debut EP, “Domino” (that’s the amazing artwork above), was conceived over two years during which Jones and Lynn were traveling separately and frequently across multiple countries and continets.

Consisting of five originals tracks, the EP feels like a lengthy journey through psycho-tropical sounds and cosmic bliss-vibes. It also features vocals from Berlin-based vocalist and performance artist Elle P. The EPs title track comes with a beautiful video, which you can watch below.

Dukes Of Chutney’s debut EP “Domino” is out now. Buy it here.

São Paulo-based trio Schoolbell, comprised of Camila Sato, Alexandre Molinari and Eduardo Ramos, first caught our attention with their infectious, disco-flavored track “Spin Me” (check out the video here). Now, Schoolbell are ready to keep the good vibes going with their upcoming, vinyl-only EP “Spin Me”.

The release features the original title track alongside remixes from New York duo Worst Friends, aka Slow Hands and Tom Croose, rising Stockholm-based producer Johan Cederberg, aka HNNY, São Paulo’s Kurc and Brooklyn-based William Rauscher, aka Night Plane. It also includes a brand new jam, called “New Club Track”. Can we ask for more?

Before you try to get your hands on that slab of wax, you can now preview Worst Friends’ blissful rework of “Spin Me”, and HNNY’s dancefloor-ready remix of the same track. Two different but equally excellent remixes.

The “Spin Me” EP will arrive in October via Gop Tun. Stream the whole thing here.

DOWNLOAD La.Ga.Sta.’s Late Summer Compilation 2012 here [160 mb]

Tracklist:

01. A.N.D.Y. – The Room (DJ Version)

Belgian producer A.N.D.Y. (formerly of Mustang) never ceases to amaze us with his skills. For this compilation he offers us a special DJ version of his brand new and unreleased track “The Room”, specially made for La.Ga.Sta. This tropical-flavored disco tune has summer written all over it, such a perfect start for our compilation. Feel the vibes.

02. Pharao Black Magic – Happy Kalimba

Here’s a super tasty feel-good tune from our favorite Swiss duo Pharao Black Magic. This new and unreleased track, called “Happy Kalimba”, is now available exclusively as part of our compilation and it will definitely put you in the right mood. We had this track on repeat in our car stereo for the past weeks, while driving around Greece. La.Ga.Sta. is surely happy!

03. Panama – Magic

All the way to Panama. More magic from Sydney-based band Panama, who recently signed to the ever-excellent Future Classic. Their brilliant debut single “Magic” was recorded in LA with Eric Broucek (DFA Records), and it’s now available for free download, courtesy of Future Classic. Expect nothing but pure Magic from Panama in the near future.

04. NTEIBINT – Quincy Bay

Greek talented producer NTEIBINT, aka George Bakalakos, who has already released the great EP “Everybody Knows A Dave” on Bang Gang 12”, he’s now ready to drop his new single “Time” on September 24th via Kitsuné. Until then, here’s his new and unreleased groovy track “Quincy Bay”, specially made for La.Ga.Sta. And yes, it feels so good!

05. Chordashian – Sea Crest

We love Brooklyn’s Chordashian, the duo of Felix Feygin and Michael Banks. Their amazing summery tune “Sea Crest”, taken from the excellent debut EP “Don’t Wait Up”, is now available for free download, courtesy of Mullet Records. Yes, summer is still here!

06. Worst Friends – Neve’s For None (Faux Pas Remix)

Melbourne electronic musician Tim Shiel, Faux Pas, who is also a member of the touring band for Gotye, recently dropped a great collection of his remixes from the last five years (2007-2012). Here we have his blissful rework of NY’s Worst Friends, aka Slow Hands and Tom Croose. It’s simply amazing! Another track exclusively on our compilation.

07. Rolla Scape – Praise Love

We are so excited to share with you a brand new and unreleased track from Rolla Scape, the side-project of our favorite Greek electronic artist K.BHTA. “Praise Love” is a brilliant slow soulful jam. Perfect for a late-night ride. Hop on!

08. Lane 8 – The Voice

Another brand new and unreleased track, this time from rising San Francisco’s producer Lane 8. As you may already know, we dig all his stuff. He was kind enough to offer us exclusively for this compilation a superb track, called “The Voice”, which is quite different from his previous offerings yet it still succeeds in delivering quality tunes. This track uses samples from Susanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner”.

09. Montevideo – Horses (Discotexas Dub)

It’s time to boogie. Discotexas bosses Moullinex, Xinobi and Mr. Mitsuhirato made a great nine-minute remix of Montevideo first single “Horses”, from their upcoming Joakim-produced debut album, “Personal Space”, due out in September. The dub version of this remix is available now exclusively on our compilation. It will knock your socks off!

10. In Flagranti – Humdrum

In Flagranti need no further introduction. Their excellent track “Humdrum” is taken from the “Dissimilated by Products from In Flagranti” (Volume 2), featuring all released tracks on Juno Download between March and April 2012. It’s now available for free download for the first time, exclusively on our compilation. What a jam!

11. Satin Jackets feat. Eric Cozier – Hollywood (Live Jam Version)

German nu disco producer Tim Bernhardt, aka Satin Jackets made a smooth live jam version of his brilliant laid-back jam, “Hollywood” for our compilation. The track was released a few months ago on his brand new label Glam Jam Artists and features melodic vocals by group member Eric Cozier. Sit back and enjoy!

12. Matthias Zimmermann – Fez

This is such an amazing track from German newcomer Matthias Zimmermann. “Fez” is taken from his debut four-track EP “Isla Dub” on Sound Pellegrino. Great vibes. Stuck on repeat!

13. Charles Murdoch – Ahama

Brisbane-based producer Charles Murdoch is our best-kept secret. He has already produced some tracks under the name Charlie Why and he’s also a member of the band Mitzi. His solo work sounds great. Here is his lush tune “Ahama” that has a dreamy vibe to it. Love at first listen!

14. Mindless Boogie – My Hero (Kid Who Edit)

The closing track on our late summer compilation is a stunning rework of Tina Turner’s “We Don’t Need Another Hero” by the always amazing Kid Who. It was released back in 2010 on Mindless Boogie, but never as a free download until now, courtesy of Smile Recordings. Drive slow.

Shout out to all the artists and labels that contributed to the making of this compilation.
